  • the Privacy Policy
  • a link to the new The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. website

It would be displayed on all WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. and New Format event sites. If it’s a site that is generated for a Community Team-sponsored event, it would have this footer at the bottom of each page.

This meets two goals.

  • One, it fills any legal requirements a state or country might have about displaying the Privacy Policy in a way that can’t accidentally be altered by an organizing team.
  • Two, it brings visibility to the new website where community member can find more events in their area, or easily apply to organize an in their area.

As always, feedback is welcomed and encouraged. Please share yours by 20 March, so we can get this footer into development as soon as possible.
